    Balluta Square

    Another view of Balluta Square showing a fruit & veg van that is a regular visitor to the square and the canopies of some of the cafes that line that side of the square.
    We had a snack and a drink in the square on quite a few evenings. The square was also handily placed at the beginning of the "shortcut" to our hotel in Sliema/Gzira - to follow thecoast road was almost an hours walk, the shortcut was under 15 minutes.

    Balluta Square

    I fell in love with this place. There was always something going on that was quite appealing, whether it be kids playing around the fountain, students meeting up for a chat and a drink or locals out to enjoy the evening air. There's a few cafes and bars down one side of it (beside the Balluta Building) and a kiosk at the opposite side. In the middle is a fountain and at one end a kind of covered shelter (a shelter against the sun, I should add). It's all very picturesque and a bit of an oasis away from the very busy promenade across the road. In the picture, the Carmelite Church can be seen in the background.

    Promenade, Balluta Bay, Malta

    I like Balluta Bay. It's not as picturesque as Spinola Bay but it has two great eateries (Barracuda and Piccolo Padre) both perched right over the sea, the Cermelite Church and of course the Balluta Building and the square in front of that. There is also a few cafes along the promenade and the Water Polo club, which is always busy by night.

    Balluta Building

    The Balluta Building is one of my favourite buildings on Malta - in fact probably my most favourite. It was built in the 1920s in Art Nouveau style and still looks wonderful. In front of the bulding is a square that is busy by day and night, a meeting place for locals and visitors alike.

    Traditional Development

    Spinola Bay, Malta

    There's still some traditional development around Spinola too. As well as the main street mentioned earlier there are some nice old buildings on the opposite side of the bay. No boubt they'll be swept away one day in a rash o modernisation like at Sliema, but I hope not.

    Modern Development

    Spinola & Portomaso

    Behind Spinola Bay is the very modern development of Portomaso (and beyond that but out of sight, Paceville). Both Portomaso and Paceville have some of the top hotels on the Island, the Hilton, Intercontinental, Westin, Radisson etc.
    Critics slam the blue tower of the Portomaso business centre but I like it, it's distinctive and quite attractive (for a tower block) and it's certainly a landmark.

    St Julians

    The main street at the back of Spinola Bay is very attractive (I think it's called St George's Street). It's traditonal buildings unspoiled by hi-rise or modernisation and housing a variety of buildings including the Labour and National clubs, the band club, some good restaurants (and McDonalds) and so on.

    Spinola Bay, St. Julian's Malta

    There are three main bays in St Julian's - Ballutta, Spinola and St Georges. Spinola bay is probably the most attractive of these, being filled with fishing and pleasure craft, many in traditional colours, and the shape and surroundings of the bay make it quite attractive too. At the end of the bay are a load of restaurants, most with outdoor seating overlooking the bay.

    We discovered a lovely garden on our way from the hotel to Saint Julian's bay, part of an amazing restaurant. Unfortunately, in May the restaurant was not opened yet...

    This is the heart of St. Julian's. Besides, the bay is full of lovely colorful Maltese fishing boats, which are not to be missed!

    Yachts

    The Portomaso complex even has its own marina - you can just dock and keep an eye on your yacht from your terrace.
